17.12.14 style (Associated Paragraph Style Name)

This element specifies the style ID for a paragraph style which shall be associated with the current glossary document entry. This paragraph style associated shall not imply anything about the formatting or content of the glossary document entry, and shall only be used to filter and/or sort this entry (via an application or a user interface). [Note: One example of the level of classification offered by this element is to only show it as available when the formatting of the paragraph matches the specified style. end note]

[Example: Consider the following WordprocessingML fragment for the properties of a single glossary document entry:

<w:style w:val="Heading1" />

The style element with a val attribute value of Heading1 specifies that the paragraph style associated with the current glossary document entry must be the style whose style ID is equal to Heading1. end example]

Parent Elements

docPartPr (§17.12.7)



val (String Value)

Specifies that its contents contain a string.

The contents of this string are interpreted based on the context of the parent XML element.

[Example: Consider the following WordprocessingML fragment:

  <w:pStyle w:val="heading1" /> 

The value of the val attribute is the ID of the associated paragraph style's styleId.

However, consider the following fragment:

  <w:alias w:val="SDT Title Example" />

In this case, the decimal number in the val attribute is the caption of the parent structured document tag. In each case, the value is interpreted in the context of the parent element. end example]

The possible values for this attribute are defined by the ST_String simple type (§

[Note: The W3C XML Schema definition of this element’s content model (CT_String) is located in §A.1. end note]
